Wikimedia Foundation projects are multilingual, with wikis in hundreds of languages being actively worked on and plenty more ready to go.

This Wikimedia Embassy is a central place for resources to help with cross-language issues — site-wide policy and software decisions that affect all of us and interlanguage linking. If you'd like to help, please set up an equivalent page on your own language's wiki and link them together, and list yourself as a Wikimedia Ambassador below.

The Marathi Wikipedia embassy was started for communication between Marathi wikipedia and other language wikipedias.

Mass deletion of files or mass cleanup of files


Hi! I made a post 10 years ago at विकिपीडिया:आंतरविकि_दूतावास/जुनी_चर्चा_१#चित्र:Anjanerikilla.jpg that all files need a license. The reply was that

"Marathi Language Wikipedia comunity has clear understanding that we do not entertain request from Non Marathi language wikipedians in such respect unless required by Wikimedia Foundations direct intervention"

Is that still the opinion on mr.wiki?

If it is then it is a clear violation of wmf:Resolution:Licensing_policy to allow non-licensed files.

I hope you will help clean up files. For example

  • Send messages to the users that is still active.
  • Look through Special:UnusedFiles and delete files with no license (or non-free files)
  • Use a bot to add a license (if uploader make a clear statement about source and license)

If central intervention is still required I will make a suggestio on meta to make a central mass deletion of files on mr.wiki.

But I see no reason why that should be needed. --MGA73 (चर्चा) ०१:१८, २६ फेब्रुवारी २०२३ (IST)Reply

Hello again! There are 19141 files on mr.wiki. About 1800 seems to have a license. Would anyone like to help save the remaining 17300 files? Ping सदस्य:अभय नातू and सदस्य:संतोष गोरे. We need local users and admins to help out. --MGA73 (चर्चा) १६:४१, १९ मार्च २०२३ (IST)Reply
@Tiven2240 आणि Usernamekiran: कृपया नोंद घ्यावी. या बद्दल मला फारशी माहिती नाही.-संतोष गोरे ( 💬 ) १९:५५, २० मार्च २०२३ (IST)Reply
  • @MGA73: Hello. Thanks for the message, and apologies for the delayed response. Even though I am active on Wikipedia every day, I somehow missed your first post. I am not sure what you mean by "Would anyone like to help save the remaining 17300 files?" If the files do not have licences, there's not much we can do. Encouraging uninvolved editors to update licenses may inadvertently result in license laundering. All the files are hosted on Wikimedia's servers in US, so legally speaking the files come under American copyright laws. Even if we assume Indian copyright laws are applicable, even then non-public domain files, and the ones without appropriate licenses should be deleted. But given the large number of files, I think this should be discussed with wider audience. Maybe sending mass message to all recently active editors, and having a discussion at Marathi village pump would be a good start. —usernamekiran (talk) २२:४२, २० मार्च २०२३ (IST)Reply
  • @Usernamekiran: Thanks a lot for your reply. I agree that license laundering is to be avoided. What could be done is to send messages to uploaders and ask them to clarify if they are the photographers or not and if they is they can add a license. If the file shows a photo that is old enough it could be PD due to age. If a file is a modification of a file from Commons/Wikipedia then the file could probably be licensed the same way as the original. If the file is non-free then it could perhaps be used as fair use if a relevant rationale can be provided.
It will be a big work unless it is decided simply to mass delete all files without a license. But it could be done in steps. For exampe files in विशेष:न_वापरलेली_चित्रे is not in use so it will not be a very big loss if they are deleted. But we could also try to find out if any of the big uploaders are still active so they get a chance to add a source and license.
If you could make a notice at a better place and in local language that would be awesome. --MGA73 (चर्चा) २३:३४, २० मार्च २०२३ (IST)Reply
For example it seems that User:Archanapote is still active and have uploaded almost 500 files without a license. Sadly User:Priya Hiregange does not seem to be active (7380 uploads). --MGA73 (चर्चा) २३:४१, २० मार्च २०२३ (IST)Reply
Similar to Usernamekiran, I missed this message as well. I think it's a fair ask to verify licensing. IIRC, a whole lot of these files were added when a few users did a SD-card dump on here. Starting with a central message and following up with specific users seems to be a prudent two-pronged approach. We (w:mr admins) will come up with messaging as well as other ways to save any files we can over the next few days. cc:@संतोष गोरे, Usernamekiran, आणि Tiven2240:
अभय नातू (चर्चा) ०४:५६, २१ मार्च २०२३ (IST)Reply
Thank you अभय नातू. I noticed that Priya Hiregange has an email on user page. Perhaps someone would like to send an email and ask? --MGA73 (चर्चा) २२:५९, २१ मार्च २०२३ (IST)Reply

It might be a good idea to have someone with a bot to add:

 |description    =
 |date           =
 |source         =
 |author         =
 |permission     =
 |other_versions =

To all files so users know where to add the information. If there is any text on the file page perhaps it could be added to the description field. --MGA73 (चर्चा) २३:०७, २१ मार्च २०२३ (IST)Reply

@MGA73: Thank you. I sampled some images uploaded by Priya Hiregange, all the sampled images had meta-data, so it is safe to assume that the files were created by Priya Hiregange. Maybe can assume that all the image files with proper metadata are user-created and add a "CC BY-SA 4.0" to these files? Regarding the template to be added, do you mean to add that blank template to every file/image, or on the files that do not have licensing information? —usernamekiran (talk) ०९:०८, २३ मार्च २०२३ (IST)Reply

@Usernamekiran: I also think that it is very likely it is own work. But I do not think adding licenses for uploaders is a good idea. There could be exceptions. For example if we get a user to write a message on their talk page "Yes they are my work and I agree to cc-by-sa-4.0". So I think it would be better to try sending an email first and ask for a license.
On some wikis licenses have been added if मिडियाविकी:Uploadtext or whatever user saw during upload had a statement like "By uploading your file you agree to release the file as cc-by-sa-3.0". --MGA73 (चर्चा) ११:३५, २३ मार्च २०२३ (IST)Reply

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── @Usernamekiran: If you want there are some things you could do with your bot. For example:

  1. Create a template like oc:Modèl:No license and add that to all files that do not have a license
  2. Add categories like "Files uploaded by <user xx>" to the files (you could start with the top 10 or 20 uploaders)
  3. Add {{Information}} on the files unless they have one (not on the non-free files)
  4. Leave a notice on the user talk pages with a message that "You have uploaded one or more files without a license. Please add one or the file will be deleted." or "You have uploaded one or more files with a free license. Please help check that it has a good source and author."

I think mr.wiki could give users for example 1 month to fix files without a license and if it is not fixed then all files should be deleted. --MGA73 (चर्चा) १९:४६, २९ मार्च २०२३ (IST)Reply

What does the word "क्रिकॉमन्स" mean? I think that साचा:क्रिकॉमन्स should be replaced by standard templates like
There is no reason to include the NC and ND templates. But I would like to make sure that the template indicate own work. --MGA73 (चर्चा) १४:०४, १ एप्रिल २०२३ (IST)Reply
Hi @Usernamekiran:! I noticed that on चित्र:! flower 18.jpg there is what seems to be a template that was substed. I have seen other examples. Parhaps you can use your bot to find such cases and converte them to a real template?
You asked earlier about metadata and there is an example on https://quarry.wmcloud.org/query/66549 where I made a list of files and their metadata. But you have to experiment a bit to find out how to look for the right metadata. Besides if file have no license then matadata will be of little use. --MGA73 (चर्चा) २२:२७, ५ एप्रिल २०२३ (IST)Reply
It seems that there are 29 users that uploaded more than 50 unlicensed files each. The remaining 1090 files were uploaded by 200 different users. So if we put the files of the 29 biggest users in separate categories and the rest of the files in categories of ~100 files in each we will have 40 categories to check/fix/delete.
For example "Files to delete om May 1", "Files to delete on May 2"... "Files to delete on June 10". I think it is easier to handle if there are are not 17,000 files in one category.
Priya Hiregange uploaded 7,380 files and बहिर्जी नाईक uploaded 1,048 files. If the files look like own work there is not much we can do to save the files unless uploader post a message with a license.
If there are some uploaders that uploaded old photos then they might be PD due to age. And if the files were copied from other wikis then it may be possible to save the files. That could take some time.
In case someone would like to try to save the files but can't do it in time, then we could have a "Files to delete - on pause". Then any user can change "Files to delete on May x" to "Files to delete - on pause" and then we wait a little longer to delete the file (for example 2 weeks). --MGA73 (चर्चा) १९:४७, ६ एप्रिल २०२३ (IST)Reply

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I know it is not an easy task or an easy choice to make. But something has to happen. So unless someone have an idea/plan how to move on I think the only choice is to start deleting files. Should someone return one day it is possible to undelete the files. But keeping files without a license is not an option. --MGA73 (चर्चा) ००:५८, १३ एप्रिल २०२३ (IST)Reply

Non free content policy

Hi @Usernamekiran:! I noticed that mr.wiki is not listed on m:Non-free content as a wiki that allow fair use. But there is विकिपीडिया:अ-मुक्त सामग्री निकष and विकिपीडिया:मराठी विकिपीडिया संचिका परवाना नीती. So I'm not sure if mr. wiki allow non-free content or not. wmf:Resolution:Licensing_policy is very clear: No non-free content unless there is a an Exemption Doctrine Policy (EDP).
If mr.wiki have no EDP then it is much easer to clean up because then all non-free files should just be deleted. That would also make it much easier to clean up files without a license because most files should simply be deleted. --MGA73 (चर्चा) १९:३०, १७ एप्रिल २०२३ (IST)Reply

I do not know of any exemptions to non-free policies on w:mr. -- अभय नातू (चर्चा) ११:३५, १८ एप्रिल २०२३ (IST)Reply
अभय नातू thank you. I think perhaps mr.wiki should discuss it and either chose to make an EDP or to chose not to allow non-free files. It is not a good solution to keep the status/policy unclear. If mr.wiki wants to allow non-free files make sure that a few users volunteer to monitor/check the files. --MGA73 (चर्चा) ०१:००, १९ एप्रिल २०२३ (IST)Reply
I have resurrected the conversation and tagged admins on it. Per usual, I've set a 21 day limit to discussion, after which a definitive policy will be set. Regards -- अभय नातू (चर्चा) ०४:४५, १९ एप्रिल २०२३ (IST)Reply
अभय नातू can you leave a note here when a policy have been set? --MGA73 (चर्चा) २१:४६, १५ मे २०२३ (IST)Reply

@Usernamekiran, अभय नातू, Tiven2240, आणि संतोष गोरे: Looking at विकिपीडिया:अ-मुक्त सामग्री निकष it seems that there is no debate there. I think that it is a clear sign that there are no users that have a strong wish to allow fair use on mr.wiki. Since there are only 391 files in वर्ग:All non-free media it will only affect a few articles if all files are deleted.

But it will make it much easier to clean up files without a license because most of them have to be deleted because uploaders are no longer active.

If someone gives my bot a flag विकिपीडिया:सांगकाम्या/विनंत्या#सदस्य:MGA73bot I can help sort files in categories by uploader or by used/unused etc. Or if you prefer I can also just add the files to a list and you can mass delete files. --MGA73 (चर्चा) ०१:५३, २७ मे २०२३ (IST)Reply

Cleanup in progress


Thank you for the bot flag अभय नातू!

I have listed 7346 files on सदस्य:MGA73/Sandbox that were all taken by User:Priya Hiregange but are without a license and not in use.

Since the user is no longer active it is not possible to save the files because only photographer can add a license. The files are not in use so if deleted the files will not leave red links in any articles. So I suggest that the files are all deleted.

सदस्य:Tiven2240 you have deleted some files recently so I ping you as info.

If you prefer I can add {{No license}}, {{Oprhan file}} and Category:Files uploaded by Priya Hiregange to the files but I was thinking that since there were so many I made a special list instead of adding templates etc. --MGA73 (चर्चा) ००:१२, २८ मे २०२३ (IST)Reply

Thanks for the cleanup work.
Let's add this template {{पानकाढा|कारण=अप्रताधिकारित चित्र}} to the page, as a callout of last resort, to these pages and leave it on for 7 days.
At the end of the period (after midnight June 4th, UTC), remove these files.
अभय नातू (चर्चा) ०६:५७, २८ मे २०२३ (IST)Reply
@अभय नातू:. Happy to help :-) I will add the template. I noticed that there are many files in वर्ग:Non Licensed Images that allready have some sort of template/warning. I will just leave that so there are 2 warnings. If user return and would add a license we can always clean up and fix file page. --MGA73 (चर्चा) १३:१२, २८ मे २०२३ (IST)Reply

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I noticed that सदस्य:Rahuldeshmukh101 is probably still actice and English speaking, so I made वर्ग:Files uploaded by Rahuldeshmukh101 and added all the uploads there and I also made a comment at सदस्य_चर्चा:Rahuldeshmukh101#License, source and author on your uploads.

I think we can do something similar to all uploaders where there is a chance that they are still active. If some of them do not speak English I need someone help write a message.

If user is long gone then I think we should just tag for deletion like with the files of Priya Hiregange. But I will not add more files for deletion untill the 7 days have passed and the files of Priya Hiregange are deleted. Files will drown if too many are marked for deletion at the same time. --MGA73 (चर्चा) १८:४८, २९ मे २०२३ (IST)Reply

I later created वर्ग:Files uploaded by Abhijitsathe (and sub category). I hope सदस्य:Abhijitsathe will notice and help fix the problem.
Also Category:Files uploaded by Priya Hiregange - special where I added the few files that are in use (or may have a license). That would make it easier if Priya return and confirm the license. --MGA73 (चर्चा) २०:५२, १ जून २०२३ (IST)Reply

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── @अभय नातू: the 7 days are up. Would you like to delete the files now? I'm sorting files of the biggest uploaders in separate categories but I have not added the deletion tag yet. I was thinking it would be best to take them one at a time so we do not flood the deletion process. --MGA73 (चर्चा) २३:२७, ५ जून २०२३ (IST)Reply

Yes, let's start the deletion process. I recommend starting with smaller uploaders and ramping up to bigger ones with a target to complete deletion by 12-Jun-2023.
Thanks again!
अभय नातू (चर्चा) ०१:५२, ६ जून २०२३ (IST)Reply
@अभय नातू: I can't delete files here on mr.wiki so you or one of the other admins have to delete the files. But I can tag them with my bot.
I have allready put the files of the biggest uploaders in categories for example वर्ग:Files uploaded by चित्रयादी/बहिर्जी नाईक. I just noticed that I made a mistake in the name because "चित्रयादी/" should not have been a part of the category name. However, I only added the deletion tag for the files of Priya (Category:Files uploaded by Priya Hiregange).
Just let me know how many files you would like to see tagged at a time and if you would like me to tag the smallest first or if I should finish the big ones that I allready put in categories. --MGA73 (चर्चा) ०२:०६, ६ जून २०२३ (IST)Reply
If you already started on bigger categories, let's continue that and tag ~250 pages at a time, until I test out mass-deletion.

I have added {{No license}} to all the files (except a few that was protected). I added the files in category per user if user had 100 or more files. The files from users with fewer than 100 uploads was added to वर्ग:Files uploaded 1-99 files. There is a link in the category so it is easy to see who uploaded the files. So all active users should check.

I tagged another category: वर्ग:Files uploaded by Santoshgajre. Thats 675 files.

Help needed with files



I could use help by local users to check the files in वर्ग:Unidentified subjects in India (1748 files). The files should be okay to move to Commons. However a local user should help check if there is a good description of the file before the file is moved to Commons. If the file is low quality or if it is not possible to identify the subject then perhaps nominate the file for deletion.

Perhaps admins can delete the files moved to Commons (the number after the category show the number of files in the category):

Also admins are needed to delete the files without a license (the number after the category show the number of files in the category):

I'm currently checking the files in वर्ग:CC-BY-SA-4.0-disputed (0 files). When they are checked they are either added to वर्ग:Unidentified subjects in India or a {{No license}} is added depending on if the uploader added the license or someone else did. --MGA73 (चर्चा) २२:३२, २९ जुलै २०२३ (IST)Reply

अभय नातू, Tiven2240 will help you.-संतोष गोरे ( 💬 ) ०६:५४, १ ऑगस्ट २०२३ (IST)Reply
Noted. Will make these changes shortly. -- अभय नातू (चर्चा) ०८:५६, १ ऑगस्ट २०२३ (IST)Reply
Thank you! I have now checked all the files in वर्ग:CC-BY-SA-4.0-disputed and less than 50 files in Category:All free media are not checked yet. It would help if someone could delete the 12 files that have been moved to Commons. --MGA73 (चर्चा) २०:११, १ ऑगस्ट २०२३ (IST)Reply

Time to delete



It has been a few months since I last checked mr.wiki and there are still many unlicensed files left.

We need an admin to delete all the files in these categories (some can be in more than one category):

I suggest to start from the top.

I could also ask on Meta but it is always preferred if a local admin delete because they know the wiki and the language. --MGA73 (चर्चा) १८:४०, ११ डिसेंबर २०२३ (IST)Reply

Hello again! I ping सदस्य:Tiven2240, सदस्य:अभय नातू and सदस्य:संतोष गोरे to make sure you see this notice. --MGA73 (चर्चा) २०:५२, १० जानेवारी २०२४ (IST)Reply
MGA73, hi, the files tobe deleted are in big number and I have no bot to delete them. That's why I am not deleting them.-संतोष गोरे ( 💬 ) २१:५२, १० जानेवारी २०२४ (IST)Reply

Will do in upcoming weeks. --Tiven2240 (चर्चा) २२:१९, १० जानेवारी २०२४ (IST)Reply

+1 ^^ -- अभय नातू (चर्चा) २२:३१, १० जानेवारी २०२४ (IST)Reply
Tiven2240 sounds good. Thank you! Once the unused files are deleted we could wait a few days with the rest so there is time to check once more if any of the files could be saved. If you think :-) --MGA73 (चर्चा) २०:१६, ११ जानेवारी २०२४ (IST)Reply
सदस्य:अभय नातू I noticed you deleted a lot of files. Great! --MGA73 (चर्चा) २३:५१, ६ फेब्रुवारी २०२४ (IST)Reply
Tiven2240 and सदस्य:अभय नातू there are still files to delete. Perhaps you could have a look? --MGA73 (चर्चा) १५:२२, १० मार्च २०२४ (IST)Reply
@MGA73: I'll look into it tomorrow. —usernamekiran (talk) २३:५५, ११ मार्च २०२४ (IST)Reply
Hi Usernamekiran, Tiven2240 and सदस्य:अभय नातू! There are still more than 7,100 files in वर्ग:Files not in use. Any chance you could delete the files? --MGA73 (चर्चा) २३:५९, १४ एप्रिल २०२४ (IST)Reply
@MGA73: if they are unquestionable deletions, I'll start working on them in 20ish hours from now. —usernamekiran (talk) ०१:५३, १५ एप्रिल २०२४ (IST)Reply
@अभय नातू: is it possible to make User:KiranBOT an admin for a month? I have created a script to delete files. But I am unable to test it as my account is not bot, and the bot account is not admin. I think it should be okay as the bot operator (me) already is an admin. —usernamekiran (talk) १६:२१, १५ एप्रिल २०२४ (IST)Reply
My preference is not to delete these with a bot.
We can continue deleting in tranches, as we have been doing.
अभय नातू (चर्चा) १०:०४, १६ एप्रिल २०२४ (IST)Reply
It will flood recent changes but if thats what you prefer its fine with me. Normal practice is to delete unlicensed files within 7 or 14 days so I suggest not to make it small tranches because it will make it take much longer time. --MGA73 (चर्चा) ०१:५८, २७ एप्रिल २०२४ (IST)Reply
I agree with MGA73 and Usernamekiran -संतोष गोरे ( 💬 ) ०७:४९, २७ एप्रिल २०२४ (IST)Reply

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Usernamekiran if the files are to be deleted with an account that does not have a bot flag then you should be able to use your main account with the bot. That way deletions will be done in the name of your main account and all deletions will be visible. Then you can still use the script but monitor the deletions? --MGA73 (चर्चा) ००:२७, २७ मे २०२४ (IST)Reply

MGA73 I have deleted number of files and still gradually deleting as per my free time.-संतोष गोरे ( 💬 ) १७:३०, २८ मे २०२४ (IST)Reply
User:संतोष गोरे Hello! My bot is now marking files for deletion. It will take some time. --MGA73 (चर्चा) ०१:३७, २ जून २०२४ (IST)Reply

@MGA73: Please do not use BOT on this Wiki without Bot Flag it is against out BOT policy. I have temporary blocked the account. Please respect local policies on this Wiki. Thanks for understanding --Tiven2240 (चर्चा) १५:२४, २ जून २०२४ (IST)Reply

@Tiven2240: Sorry about that. I made the edits because I was asked to do them. The edits are rather simple to make with a bot so it would be easy for a local bot operator to make them. --MGA73 (चर्चा) १५:३६, २ जून २०२४ (IST)Reply
Please request for bot rights on विकिपीडिया:सांगकाम्या/विनंत्या --Tiven2240 (चर्चा) १५:५८, २ जून २०२४ (IST)Reply

I will wait untill most of the files allready tagged is deleted. But I think perhaps a lille help would be useful so I asked at meta if there are anyone who can help the local admins with the files. --MGA73 (चर्चा) २०:५२, १५ जून २०२४ (IST)Reply
